I found it easy to get up and running with ndiswrapper doing the following:

1. make sure ndiswrapper is installed (use synaptic if its missing)

2. put the driver disk in and cd to /media/cdrom0/ndis5

3. run: sudo ndiswrapper -i netwpn11.inf

4. run: sudo ndiswrapper -m

5. run: sudo modprobe ndiswrapper (this will happen automatically when you reboot)

6. put the device in the USB slot (if it wasn't there already).

Now click on the network
icon and you will see the wireless connections it detected.

I hope this helps.

Have a Netgear WG111v3. Are there drivers or how do I get it to work? Would like to use with WiFi

Can you help with this problem?
